    Or Shockwave (voyager sized) or a proper classics Soundwave?

    Most of the original G1 Autobot lineup has been now made in the CHUG lines...

    Just missing a few. I would love to see the rest made. Especially a Shockwave.


    You know Trailbreaker has to be coming, because that mold would make a Hoist too.

    I would also bet that a new Skywarp, just like Thundercracker will appear.

    In fairness, i think it's nearly 3 days since the last Classics wishlist.

    Or have i just learned to tune it out?

    LMAO you trumped my smartassedness lol

    Bottom line with classics. If Hasbro does not end up making every character from season 1-4 some 3rd party group will.

    TF: Prime will get all of Mommy and Daddy's love once the Movie goes off to college. Classics is like the red headed step child to Hasbro. (but not really, it is more like the child that gets less gifts than the other siblings because it gets a giant gold nugget to the other's 4 silver pieces)

    Probably get a new deluxe seeker mold with War for Cyberton II next summer.

    The classics one, which has been used in what... like a dozen different figures (6 main seekers + acid storm + exclusives) since the original Starscream is clearly wearing out. But boy, did they get some mileage out of it.

    With Dotm Crankcase they're probably avoiding any vehicle confusion. Maybe they'll give us Hoist first?

    Remember the time when Jazz, Wheeljack, Kup, and Tracks were the ones being mentioned in these types of threads?

    Also, I think it would be nice to see some consistency in the mini-bot G1 lineup.

    Like Windcharger, I'd like to see Bumblebee, Cliffjumper, Huffer, Gears, etc. in the same Scout class size.

    It's a revolving door isn't it?

    I'm sure Hasbro will release a Trailbreaker...eventually.

    I've said it before but it bears repetition:

    Hoist and Trailbreaker could be done as flatbed / pickup trucks, in the style of G1 Hoist without the towing rig. Each could come with a different weapons pack that transforms into a section to plug into the truck bed. Trailbreaker gets his rear section as in Generation 1, which could attack to the back as a weapons backpack (forcefield generator, maybe have a couple of pop out panels on the sides so he can have pistols or something?). Hoist gets his towing rig which transforms into a sniper rifle in homage of Movie Longarm, his previous repaint.

    I'm sure they'll eventually happen. Same as Shockwave. Soundwave's a maybe, he'd have a new alternate mode, probably a truck, if Hasbro didn't make Trailbreaker and Hoist the same mold I could honestly see Soundwave being a Trailbreaker remold.

    It'll happen.

    They atleast have a replace name for Trailbreaker, Trailcutter, this stopped them from making Trailbreaker before hand.

    I can't believe we're still waiting for a Shockwave.

    And don't forget the Dinobots. Come on 3rd party people pick up the slack!

    (Hopefully) They'll do waht they usually do. Wait until the movie hype dies down, introduce a new "classics" set (with obligatory new name) and hopefully give us the last few guys we're missing:
    Trailbreaker
    Shockwave
    Hoist
    Skids
    Blitzwing
    Brawn
    --->And whoever else, I dunno.
